Skip,

Please make these strips available as .PNG files in a series, not JPEGs, as the compression would introduce many artifacts! I'm truly appreciate of all the hard work you fine folks at the Archive are doing, and I just feel to do these film strips justice series' of .PNGs would be best. They are also pretty much universially compatible (MAC, PC, LINUX, DOS, Windows and many standalone DVD players as well!!)

Powerpoint is proprietary and not in the best interest of the fan's of this archive. If you must (for space reasons), make these high-quality sequential- .JPEGS instead of Powerpoint slideshows. Please, this archivefan is begging...

If the final file is in the ppt (powerpoint) format rather than pps (powerpoint show) format, then users could simply go into the file and obtain the individual png's for use in other programs. At least you would be starting with a constructed presentation in the first place.
